On a point of order. I am really almost distressed to interrupt the hon. Member, but he says that at least the Schedule is there and that he has got that much, but when one reads the Schedule one sees the words: "Session and Chapter," "Title" and then a term which now has no meaning—"Relevant provisions," without any indication of what they are relevant to, and under that heading there are the words: Subparagraph (4) of paragraph 3 of the Schedule from 'every person' onwards, without any observation at all. I submit that the hon. Member is out of order in addressing the House on a Schedule which is now meaningless.
